We Are Losing Members To Labour Party In Benue – APC Chieftain

All Progressives Congress (APC) leader Anthony Obekpa claims that the party is losing supporters to the Labour Party (LP) in the state’s Ogbadibo LGA.

Austin Agada, the chairman of the Benue APC, is unconcerned about the situation in his LGA, according to a statement from Obekpa, despite efforts to meet with him to find a long-term solution.

The chieftain warned that if nothing is done to address the problem, the results of the elections in 2023 will be disastrous.

“The fact that Hon. Eloyi Ogbe, our former local government secretary, joined the Labor Party is no longer breaking news. Recent events in the APC leadership in Ogbadibo and zone C in general are undoubtedly related to his choice to join the labor party,” the statement reads.

Our staunch members are defecting daily. Our state chairman, Comrade Austin Agada it seems is not bothered about the candidates from Ogbadibo winning or not.

“I think he is content being the chairman and having Rev. Fr. Alia as Governorship candidate. I don’t have his ears anymore. I am not on the same page with him as he has made some people believe.

“He is not communicating with me. The scouts of the Labour Party are hoovering around APC stakeholders. Their aspirants are consulting, recruiting and convincing our party faithful.

We must do something except if we have all decided to abandon the party.

If the party wins at the centre and we don’t have representatives at the state assembly and national assembly I am sure we all know we will be back to square one.”

Obekpa said no matter what happens, he would not leave the APC.
